but more of the goal for biden, bring up points, try to force ryan on defense even if he doesn't take the bait, as you hear from some republican advisers, they say that ryan isn't going to do that. they will try to avoid getting into direct confrontations. at least we'll show life on that front. these vp debates only matter in somebody loses badly. if somebody fumbles. let's remember, one of the biggest knockouts in a vp was lloyd benson over dan quayle. how did that work out? >> 2004 when w. lost the first debate to john kerry and then dick cheney came back and won the second debate against edwards, putting him down in a book, it seems like there's more of that situation. don't they have to stop the bleeding by a victory? >> yes, i do believe that, that they've got to stop the bleeding and you also bring up another point here and i think we overlook and that is, i think a majority of folks watch a vp debate to see, can these guys be president? you know, we're going to sit here a score the policy fights and back and forth and we overlook this fact and that is why these little generati

joe. >> okay. there are a number of moments in the debate when paul ryan seemed to be playing defense against biden's attacks. here were the two candidates squaring off on the romney tax plan which remains impossible to defend in terms of mathematics. he'll never tell us which one he's going to get rid of. let's watch. >> you can cut tax rates by 20% and still preserve these important preferences for middle class taxpayers -- >> not mathematically possible. >> it is mathematically possible. it's been done before. it's precisely what we're proposing. >> it has never been done before. >> it's been done a couple times. >> it has never -- >> jack kennedy lower tax rates -- >> oh, now you're jack kennedy. >> ronald reagan. >> that's what you saul synap s synapses. now you're jack kennedy. >> the things that's so hard to analyze this debate, you could not watch the whole debate, you could start at the first minute and say what do you think about joe biden? and if people said, i kind of like him, then you like the debate and you thought biden won. if you said -- >> by the way, that's been sa

perhaps, but it is, in fact, my feeling. there comes a time, it's called attack from a defensive position. the president has been attacked. i think it's time to return the favor to romney. your thoughts this week. >> it's what he had to do in the debate, didn't do, and it's what he has to do every day between now and the next debate. he has to draw the contrast on medicare and straighten out this myth that the president cut $716 million from medicare benefits. he didn't. they're cut from medicare providers like insurance companies that are overcharging. he has to attack on the issue of taxes. there aren't enough tax loopholes or tax deductions to pay for romney's tax cut unless you cut into home interest mortgage deductions, unless you get rid of state and local taxes. that will hit the middle class hard. you have to be honest about this. the debate hurt obama and helped romney, and romney's gotten a bump in the polls, although it seems to be flattening out. you look at the new poll in ohio, the president is at 51%, romney is at 47%. i think the president, the fundamental structu

president can remain polite. i just hope we see a more aggressive defense and a better frame, a better narrative about who he is, what he's done and where we're going as a country. >> let's start with the negative. let's play defense here. what about going after this 47%, when romney was being taped, not on national television, but when he thought he wasn't on national television, when he basically dismissed half the country for being slackers, moochers, whatever, loafers. when he did that, that wasn't something he was saying by accident. that is something, serious, he can still go after that once romney's taken it back? >> yes, absolutely. and he needs to go after it. one of the things he need to do, dee dee points out, there are three chapters. look what i inherited and look at the situation that confronted me the moment i walked in the office. the second chapter is, look what we did. every single thing we did, maybe it didn't work as fast or as well as we would have liked but it's working now. every single thing we did, the republicans and mitt romney tried to keep us from doing. an

fourth quarter reference, by the way. from the xarn, getting out there, bob. >> pretty good defense, bob. >> i think i actually wrote that meteorologist and months ago. >>> that's what, bob, i think we all agree what didn't work was the defense, because he's not that far ahead. he can't get to the fourth quarter -- >> we'll see what obama shows up in two weeks. >> who will win this thursday? joe biden has got to win, because the tie goes i think to the other guy. >> i think it's a tie. >> i think biden will win. i think he's a terrific debater. i think a lot of people underestimate him. >> not you, not me. thank you both. >>> coming up, unmasking the so-called mitt. he pulled a classic et asketch last week. when is president obama going to stop talking about big bird and go after the big stuff and the other guy? >>> also the war in the west, senate races in north dakota, montana, nevada and arizona, they're all toss-ups. tonight a democrat making a, richard carmona is here. >>> and jon stewart takes on the jobbers, the right-leaning conspiracy theorists who say the unemployment numb

, jonathan mart martin. biden, first of all for the opposition, you're on defense, michael. >> always on defense. >> what does mr. ryan have to do to fend off the older, perhaps more seasoned veterans tonight? >> i think what he has to do is not get down in the weeds of the numbers but take those numbers and translate them into real people, real stories out there, very much as you saw romney do at the beginning of the delate last time. it really set the tone for where he was going to go and how he was going to frame the discussion. so i think to the extent he can do that, it gets him in some good ground. >> does he have the ability to nail the guy on where the weedy decisions on vouchers, on person 45 hood, on cuts of things like capital gains, and getting rid of estate taxes and lowering the top individual rate. all the wealth going to the top people, can biden nail him on that stuff? >> i did an interview with the vice president back in august and he hasn't done very many ser interviews. we talked about this thing. this is obviously before what happened in denver last week, but this
